"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
PreS Up-- A collection of poems, original stories, and folktales from around the world, retold by authors from Australia and New Zealand. Thus, in the nontraditional works, readers will come to savor words such as "billycan" and "bunyip," but they will need to look elsewhere for definitions as a glossary is not included. Best for reading aloud, the selections are generally worthwhile and varied. A few suffer from that particularly British sort of nursery tone, and stories such as "John Brown, Rose, and the Midnight Cat" are stronger as single-volume picture books. Brooks's sketchy, pastel-washed pen-and-ink drawings here are merely decorative and have a subdued tone. An unusual offering for libraries with a demand for read-aloud anthologies. --Sally Bates Goodroe, Houston Public Library
